But what is it? What makes them different from the other men in our lives? Is dating a military man really that different? It certainly can be. We all want a ificant other to be there at all times for us, the good and the bad.

Communication is important in any relationship, but your military man will probably not sugar coat anything. Be prepared to learn to tell it to him straight. Exaggerated or not, war stories are fun to listen to.

Get ready to listen to the same few stories on repeat, especially when out with friends. One great thing about military men is that they are exposed to different cultures, places, and people. Perhaps in some ways more than others. Chances are, this military man of yours is going to deploy or leave for training.

Man, the acronyms and terminology are so hard to keep up with! His friends, his brothers, they come with him. Be prepared for late nights with all the guys. Remember this devotion is what you love about him. As you date a military man, you may see some changes in yourself as well. Your education or career may be at the bottom of the list of priorities. Your reaction to these times will give you an idea as to how the future may look.

Try not to let this get the better of you. These people may include your mother. Try anyway! Make some friends, be polite to everyone, and listen more than you speak. But know this, you can, and you will. And when you know this, it is a lot easier to maintain a military relationship. There is really no way around this one. If the military needs him, he will go. He has to, so try not to hold it against him.

Knowing that the military will come first, there may be things you can do to make it easier on your relationship. Try not to hold a grudge. And some of them even apply to you. These men are physically and emotionally strong, and they have a work ethic like no other. Of course! Sometimes couples get engaged and then married quickly because of an upcoming deployment or duty station move.

In the eyes of military, you must be married in order for your spouse to come with you. My boyfriend and I were together for years before we got married. This really depends on the base he is stationed at. And if that is the case, spouses cannot stay there. At other bases, single service members are allowed to live off base, and if they are off base, you can live with them. Really depends on a multitude of factors. In my past experience, my service member did not have a cell phone while deployed. Things are always changing, so I would take that on a case-by-case basis with your service member.

Long distance, demanding training schedules, frequent moves, and more — all are serious contributors to a challenging lifestyle. Rebecca Alwine is an army wife, mother of three, and lover of her adorable pirate dog. Her days consist of CrossFit workouts, audiobooks, and pretending to cook while her Instant Pot does all the work. Her motto: work smarter, not harder.

Is this true??? Hello , spousal form? According to your post it seems you have recently started talking to him. Spousal means your either married or have been living together with kids and it comes through in your tax forms. This to me seems sketchy. Be careful. I have a friend who was talking to military man and he would invent all sorts of lies to get money off of her. Only Because a person wears a uniform doesnt mean they are honorable people.

Long story short she sent him tons of money used her for his advantage and then turns out he lied about many things. Wish you well. Hi I am currently dating a military guy…. Hello, Im confused do you mean if your military person is really in the armed forces? Or is the person real as in genuine and honest? Okay if its the first one then its too easy have him show you proof every service memeber has a military ID start off there if your still not convinced as for paperwork.

If he becomes offended hes probaly up to somwthing and most likely lying to you. Now if its the second one then that one is easy too. Look in all honesty if a person doesmt matter if they are service members or not if a person is real then their actions will back them up. All talk and no do doesnt make a person real.

When someone is real they will be honest even if the truth hurts. They will be genuine and their actions not their words will back them up. We are all adults here dont use your emotions for this one. Hi , am currently dating a military guy and this piece has helped me. But are military guys always short tempered? Hello, that depends? Are you talking about every guy in the military out there? Or are you talking about your boyfriend? Because if your generalizing no not every military guy has a short temper.

I can speak on this matter because my boyfriend doesnt have a short temper. Now if its your boyfriend the one who has the short temper then that changes the conversation. The real question is do you want to put up with someone doesnt matter if they are in the military or not that has a short temper. Put your pros and con into consideration personal safety comes first.

First its the short temper then not in all cases but it can begin to a more serious issue like relationship abuse. Be safe prioritize your well being. This will be a hard one to swallow but Im talking to you woman to woman. I myself have a sisters a mother cousins and friends im only giving you the same advice i would give them. We are all adults and as adults we have the power to choose whatever that decision might be. I wish you well. Ima be honest with everyone. As a girlfriend of an Army reservist rank Staff Seargant. It has a bitter sweet feeling towards the relationship.

You need to be a person that knows what you want and be very clear. I have the expectation that my boyfriend will be the same when in reality it doesnt always play out this way. I understand everyones struggles Im living them first hand. Because the military doesnt care about your feelings or relationship. I advice everyone to truly sit down when beginning to date your military partner and have a clear straight to the point no sugar coating conversation with them.

Adress everything even the things that might seem silly because its all fun and games until a deployment comes along a mission comes along or their yearly 2 week or plus training away from you kicks in. Trust me then what you might have thought would be silly will suddenly turn serious and resentment can and will occur. I understand that we need to support them but we as the partner that is part of the ride we need to take care of ourselves even more. If you think you can handle it easy peasy lemon sweezy hey continue sis koodos to you. But we dont live in a fairytale land we live in the real world with real probelms.

Just how our partners have expectations with us i advice everyone to have them. I understand the point of view of the author and shes sharing some parts of the story but please please please never assume that because someone else has it one way your relationship will be the same. Remember only you and your partner can make your relationship work. Sure he might be a hero or thee toughest guy you know. But understand this that will. Straight up I wish everyone success in their military relationships use your head not your emotions. This may not be for everyone but to those that can relate know that I understand what your going through and I can only pray everyone can balance their relationship.
